Route Spray Name Type Grade Quality Length Picture


Reptilian Brain Trad 5.10a
As the trail approaches the cliff, this short and steep hand crack can be found right of the main wall hosting the bolted lines. Steepness:


One Drop Sport 5.11d
This is the first bolted route encountered on the main wall and also the less featured. Tweaky moves on small edges and shallow pockets lead to a steeper and more relaxed, though slightly odd, finish. Steepness:
fun-1 : dynamic-1


Bon Voyage Sport 5.11d
Marked by glue-in bolts. This line takes on the golden wall with long reaches between bullet pockets. Steepness:


Return of the Mohan Sport 5.11d
The premier line of the area. The first ascentionist stated it was his best line since Tuskan Raider at Darkside. Fingery climbing on solid rock with just the right amount of holds to keep the grade moderate and the moves remarkable. Steepness:


Rising Hegemon Sport 5.11b
Although not the quality of its neighbors, this line serves as a fun warm up for the area. Begin with a few bolts of slightly friable rock to reach better stone above. Steepness:


BCL Sport 5.11a
Start 10 ft right of Hammer Time. Pockets and jugs lead to enjoyable climbing on the upper arete. Steepness:
pumpy-1 : steep-1


Hammer Time Sport 5.11b
Just right of a flake leading to a thin seam begins this line. It is marked by a large nose flake feature near the top. A bit of creativity will gain you a no-hands rest here, which you may need for the crux run for the chains. A nearly unavoidable encounter with a big, scary hold awaits at the end. Steepness:


Can't Touch This Sport 5.12b
Tackle a low boulder problem that will test your lock off strength as you reach for a high crimp and shorties may find that they can't touch this. Regain your composure and finish the route up on a series of fun yet pumpy roof pulls. Steepness:


Fodiqua Sport 5.9
This line takes on the slab in the water streak. Rumor has it this will still be dirty in 3014. Remember though, dirt does not a bad route make. Steepness:


Malignant Sport 5.11a
What it lacks in cleanliness it makes up for with length. Thin edges lead to a small roof with a jug where you will probably be for awhile as you scope for holds above. Eventually you will realize there really aren't many so you should probably just quit wasting time and try something. Steepness:


Melanoma Mixed 5.10d
Begin in the chimney behind the pillar. Continue up the crack and eventually merge with Sundial near the top. Steepness:


Sundial Sport 5.11a
A magnificent face climb. Scramble to the top of the pillar with stemming and face holds to begin. Step out onto the face when ready for high quality and technical face climbing. The final section climbs the crack to the right of the last bolt. Clipping is possible with a good side-pull in the crack. Steepness:


Dirty Habit Sport 5.10d
This line begins just right of the blunt arete near the detached pillar. Due to the runoff expect a layer of dirt but don't let it chase you off! The holds are decent and the movement is great so it can still be a fun ride for a select few. Steepness:


Dancing Queen Sport 5.10b
Left of Dirty Habit is a pair of lines. This climbs the slab with a low crux. Dirty at this time but as with most lines it may clean up to be a decent line given the solidity of the rock. Steepness:


Linny Lu Sport 5.10a
Left of Dancing Queen is another low-angle line that will probably clean up well with age. Steepness:

Is there a line that goes up that big "scoop" to the right of Hammer Time? Just from the photo it looks like a really cool feature, but it could be sandy choss.

I thought The Red was world-class? Is this a joke?

I think I was on dancing queen, and broke off what too me was a critical left crimp above 4th bolt I believe ...might not be 10a anymore. Just a heads up.
